Learning outcomes and competencies Students are able to independently plan and use basic working methods of animal and plant cell-based protein production (establishment, cell expansion, cell mass propagation, biphasic production process with t-shift). They are able to understand and evaluate their results as well as present their data to experts. Furthermore, they can make recommendations for process improvements.
Course content
  • Characteristics of mammalian cells, metabolism and culture medium
  • Main working techniques in mammalian cell cultivation
  • Cell culture bioreactors: reusable and single-use
  • How to grow adherent mammalian cells at mL and L-scale
  • Insect cells and their cultivation
  • Plant cells: culture type, establishment and main working techniques
  • Plant cell bioreactors: an overview
  • An approach for developing plant cell culture-based processes
  • How to produce SEAP in standard and single-use bioreactors
  • Mass propagation of fast growing plant cells
  • Hi-5 suspension cells: characteristics and mass propagation
  • How to rapidly scale-up animal cell-based processes
  • How to determine the main important engineering parameters of cell culture bioreactors
  • CFD as an important modern tool for characterizing cell culture bioreactors and developing processes Troubleshooting
